After a storm:

  • Listen to your local radio stations as emergency management officials will be broadcasting the most appropriate advice for your community and situation
  • Check for injuries and help others if you can, especially people who require special assistance
  • Look for and report broken utility lines
  • Contact your district council if your house or building has been severely damaged
  • If your property or contents are damaged take notes and photographs and contact your insurance company.
  • If you are renting, inform your landlord if there is damage to the rental property
  • Ask your district council for advice on how to clean up debris safely.
